and ex-boyfriend. i know that many women's groups from gabrielle a to san francisco women against rape to the filipino women's network and the san francisco domestic violence consortium have been working on this issue for many years. ms. timpanco claire joyce made at least five 911 calls during violent episodes that allegedly perpetrated by her killer and while he was mandated to attend counseling after one of the attacks he failed to complete the batterers's program. police unknowingly released him after a subsequent attack on ms. timpanko. her case thankfully led to -- led to improvements in how we handle domestic violence cases in san francisco. but it's because of the hard work of our antidomestic violence organizations and women's groups and community organizations that we've made progress. but there is so much more to be done and we cannot stand for this conviction to be overturned at the california supreme court. so, i urge you to check in with the women's and antidomestic violence groups as this case moves forward. this decision could have a huge and long-lasting effect not jus

. not unlike the situation after the earthquake we rebuilt san francisco we built a lot of big apartment buildings because this was a growing workforce. it's appropriate we need the density but i think one of the beautiful things l about san francisco we have divert however, there's another part of this whole story what happened was people were fleeing san francisco to live in oakland, berkeley in resident parks because they didn't want to be so dense and there was no plays for it to be built and san francisco developed like st. france, lakeside village and later forest hill and we speak about forest hills it provided a place for lack of a better term people in what would be upper-middle class could live in an area that wasn't so dense. now we're building almost no single-family homes in san francisco. and what is happening is people with families what are looking particularly for a new home are forced out of san francisco. if they buy an older home there's in bad shape. or they're forced into homes where the neighborhoods are used for other things other than housing and it's not a pleas

[laughter] we saw real estate values dropping precipitously. as far as we were concerned, that was a good thing because it enabled us to move into market street. the city had encouraged us to do so, too, as they were very much interested in revitalizing market, 6th and market, which is essentially part of the tenderloin. we thought there were a lot of opportunities there. we know something about making urban environments vital. given the present political move, people are open to new ideas. that is true across the country. our burners are being asked to come into centers of various cities for aetna. -- right now. whehowever, as soon as things gt better, they are escorted out. but we might begin to break that cycle. it is just wonderful to walk out on the street and see the world walking by. >> are you giving the twitter deal? >> yes, we are. we just founded a new nonp

to where they are at present the case sowler composite and san francisco is halfway through the pack there down to about 33% and so whole values are still off from where they were before but if you look at where we are from the low point until where we are today, san francisco is looking a little bit better and oakland is not a member city and they randomly take 20 cities that are plead broadly representative of the housing market and san francisco is the second line on here and posted as one of the naysest paces of recovery and so we get some help from residential construction and we also get help from securelier spending this is what i'm showing here and this is the debt service ratio and it's an interesting concept if says if you add up my mortgage payment and car payment and any other kind of consumer debt that i carey and how much of that is a% of personal disposable income and where we are at relative total whereas 30 years that service ratio is about as low as it's been during anytime at that period and is there any reason that the fed tries to lower interest raid and rate and

(applause) >> thank you, naomi. i want to thank you for that introduction and just a recall of what i said earlier this week. but i also said something else, too, that i want you to continuously know the way i have attempted to manage this great city of ours for everybody. that is, i'm not shy about asking for help. and when it comes to the challenges we have in the african-american community, we need help. and i have been deliberately assembling a very important group of people who are going to help me get the job done. and you've seen some of these people already. they are malia cohen, london breed at the board. they have to face all the different politics. but i know they're going to be great partners with me because we've got the right objectives to happen. we want everybody included in the city. we have na
an extended family of about 25 san francisco firefighters clul my father who served on the san francisco fire department. my main certain is fire safety. members of the commission this project is unsafe from a fire standpoint. basically because the fir people call the escape route is grossly inadequate. first of all, the san francisco fire code provides that i must have an assess road or an escape route a minute of 25 feet wide unobstructed. this project allows parking on both sides of the street that reduce the width of the road to rou roughly 15 to 16 feet. this project is flat out in violation of the san francisco fire code in that the roads escape roads are not 20 feet wide unobstructed and continuance. the second point equally important is anybody who has studied forest areas first of all, it's dangerous to have only one escape route but if you have an escape route that is less than 20 feet wide it's asking for problems. example one is the height lands disfavor in 1991 in the oakland fire. that particular tragedy was that people tried to leave. 11 people died including 6 going in their c

a restaurant there on the condition he got a building permit from the city of san francisco. and it seems rather ridiculous he would go and spend $100,000 and then afterwards the next door neighbor decides this is an illegal thing and the building department didn't even know that. it would seem correct that the city of san francisco would refund him the $100,000 that he spent to put a restaurant in there and this gentleman here his $40,000, a rather ridiculous system that the building department doesn't know the correct laws before he puts this in. and he wasn't going around anybody's back. he has a restaurant on 9th avenue and he was wanting to have a second restaurant. so, that's all i want to say. >> is there any other public comment? okay, seeing none, then, commissioners, the matter is yours. >> i guess unless there is any other comments, i guess i would move to grant the appeal and revoke the permit. >> would that be on the basis that there are no code complying plans? >> yes. >> okay. mr. pacheco, you heard that? >> yes. we have a motion from commissioner hurtado to revoke this per

on the internet about it, people suggested thises was another scheme by the mayor to build things in san francisco. i thank you for holding this hearing because i think it puts it in the right perspective. the driving issue here is transportation and how we can approve the regional transportation system. and as those of us who have gotten deep into this know that it would be -- there's the issue of the tunnel and how where the train goes underground and how that fits with the freeway and that's how the issue became [speaker not understood] as to what we do with the freeway. so, i think we need to continue to emphasize when we're talking about this very large and complex set of issues that the driver is transportation. it is not just the opportunity to develop more property. that's a secondary part. and if we do develop the property, it could generate revenues which can be reinvested in transportation. thank you. >> thank you, mr. haft. is there any other member of the public who would like to comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. i want to thank mr. ram and everyone, i see mr. light here
